The idea of sugar cookie taste testing doesn’t sound all that appetizing, but then again neither does a sugar buzz, so I hope you’re game! The purpose of this blog post is to show you how to make an amazing sugar cookie taste-test with 3 Keto sweeteners, in order to help you decide which one is the best for your keto lifestyle.
If you’re looking for a quick way to kick your body’s sugar metabolism into high gear, a good way to do it is to incorporate some high fat foods. This is one of the best ways to build and maintain muscle mass as well as jump-start fat loss.
Let the taste test of cookie baking begin!
After making keto sugar cookies, I wondered which low-carb sugar substitute was best for making sweets. There are so many alternative sweeteners these days that it can be confusing.
I decided to try 3 popular keto approved sugar substitutes to see which works best for baking cookies.

So let’s get to work! I used my basic sugar cookie recipe, just swapped out the sugar. I was very surprised by the results, as I didn’t expect the substitution of one ingredient to make such a big difference.

The best sugar cookies to help you choose keto friendly alternatives to sweeteners.
- 1/2 cup butter
- 1/2 cup alternate substance or more*
- 2 tablespoons cream cheese
- 1 egg
- 1 Teelöffel Mandelextrakt
- 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
- 1 cup of flour am
- 1/2 cup coconut flour
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
In a large bowl, using an electric mixer, beat the butter, cream cheese and alternative sweetener* until smooth. Add the egg and extracts and mix on high speed until the mixture is frothy.
*3 alternative sweeteners we tested, see notes below the recipe.
Put the remaining dry ingredients in a bowl and stir over low heat.
Form the sponge dough into a large ball and cover with cling film. Place in the refrigerator for at least 1 hour.
Once chilled, remove from the refrigerator and use a cookie cutter to cut about 1-2 balls out of the dough. Place them on a baking sheet lined with baking paper. Since these cookies don’t get flat like the others, I dip a flat-bottomed cup in water and squeeze the cookies (if you don’t do this, you’ll get spherical cookies).
Bake for about 8 minutes or until edges are lightly browned. Remove the cookie sheet from the oven. Do not remove the cookies from the baking sheet until they have cooled completely. It takes about 10 minutes to cool down.

Keto sugar cookies baked with Swerve grains
Personally, I’m a big fan of Swerve because I think it’s very similar to regular sugar. I left the rest unchanged to get a fair result. The verdict? These sugar cookies came out looking like a perfect old cookie – the taste reminded me of grandma’s cookies! I also didn’t get an icy aftertaste like some people have with Swerve.
Keto sugar cookies baked with monk fruit
Monk fruit has a more subtle sweetness and I don’t think it’s as strong as Swerve. I should have added a little more than the 1:1 ratio, but I liked the sweetness of the cookies. Thanks to the use of Lakanto Monkfruit sweetener, this cookie was the softest of the three, although I felt more almond flour in this one than in the others.
In total, I would add another 1/4 cup of Monkfruit to the 1/2 cup in the original recipe.
Baked keto sugar cookies with mashed potatoes
For my last cookie, I was curious about this alternative to sugar, as I was not yet familiar with Pyure, which is made from erythritol and stevia leaf extract. When it was put in the bowl, it was very powdery and had a strong smell. The cookies seemed fine, as the color and texture were very similar to the first Swerve cookie, but this cookie had a cooling aftertaste that I didn’t like.
So what was the winner for me?
I could eat these cookies all day, but I have to say my favorite alternative sweetener was Swerve. In my experience, it behaves like regular cane sugar and has the wonderful taste and texture of a classic sugar cookie.
Try this recipe with your favorite sweetener and tell me what you think.
